Back to regularly scheduled programming

I’ve been a busy busy gal.  work is still nuts.  I’m back to my regular routine for the most part though.  Hooray for sanity.

What’s new:  feeling better (yay!), SXSW is this week (although i’ve been too busy to plan anything yet), I went Gluten Free for lent.

Easy weeknight dinner:  chicken chalupas

  • baked tostada/chalupa shells
  • grilled chicken or other meat (or not, we usually eat these meatless)
  • refried beans
  • sauteed fajita veggies
  • lettuce, tomato
  • optional: mushrooms, jalapenoes, garlic, other veggies
  • salsa
  • cheese

spread the shells with the beans, sprinkle cheese, top with chicken, and heat in microwave or broiler.  Top with veggies and enjoy! 

I forgot how easy and filling these are.  We usually eat these vegetarian, but I had leftover chicken i’d grilled on Sunday night, it was a nice change of pace.  and it’s packed with protein and veggies.

Mine were 10 P+ for the ingredients and amounts that I used.

~Here’s another quick and easy meal from the weekend I had for lunches:

Spicy Peanut Stir-Fry

  • grilled chicken
  • stir fry veggies (I used onions, broccoli, carrots, multicolored peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, snap peas, etc)
  • red pepper flakes
  • soy sauce or alternative
  • peanut butter

Stir fry chicken and veggies together in healthy oil.  Add red pepper flakes and soy sauce.  Stir in 1 tablespoon or more of peanut butter.  

Super easy and tasty.  Serve with brown rice.  Or do like me and stir fry it INTO the veggies.

  1. So do you think the GF diet is working so far? Sorry I didn’t have a lot of suggestions or help for you. I know there are so many fantastic web sites and lots of cookbooks too. I got my sister a basic guide for Christmas that she really liked.

    • I think it may be too soon to tell.

      I do realize now, that I was grabbing my Ezekiel and wheat tortillas to make lunches, snacks, and grab and go breakfasts. That’s been rough. that and I haven’t had oatmeal, which is killing me. Oats not milled in a facility that also does oats are really expensive 😦 Maybe i’ll cave in eventually. I’m expanding horizons on the breakfast especially.
